Child drowned in Delhi Township on Solarama Court

DELHI TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Police identified the child who drowned in a swimming pool Sunday as a 4-year-old girl.

Delhi Township police responded to a home on Solarama Court around 7:30 p.m. for a report of a missing child.

According to police, the child had gone back into the house, then somehow got into the pool unnoticed. Adults and family members were by the pool area, police said.

It wasn’t until police arrived that the child was located in the pool.

“This isn't neglect, it's not a criminal situation, it's just a tragic one,” an investigator told WCPO.

The child’s identity has not been released.
